Tramadol Hydrochloride: A Prospective Local Anesthetic Agent

Srivastava M, Chowdhury S and Vishal G

Local anaesthesia has been widely practiced with minimal risk of complications. To evaluate the local anesthetic property of 5% tramadol hydrochloride with adrenaline, a prospective research study was conducted in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery unit of Bokaro General Hospital, Jharkhand. A total number of 39 patients who needed various oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures were selected as per the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Pain on injection, onset of anesthesia, volume of 5% tramadol hydrochloride used, duration of anesthesia and post-operative analgesia was assessed for the same. Study showed that 5% Tramadol HCl with adrenaline is a good alternative anaesthetic agent for local anaesthesia in oral and maxillofacial surgeries. Its dual property as an analgesic and anaesthetic could be advantageous for long-term surgical operations.
